Unique Art/Lifestyle Event Creates Community Gifts Galore and More Scheduled October 3rd -4th in East Cobb
A nationally recognized textile designer, Lynn Reiter Weinberg will convert her eclectic East Cobb home, studio and garden into a showcase for East Cobb artists and vendors Tuesday October 3rd and Wednesday October 4th. Weinberg's home, in the Somerset subdivision, is quite unusual and has been featured by the Atlanta Journal Constitution in their section called Private Quarters.
“The public is warmly invited to the 9th annual Gifts Galore & More,” says event creator Lynn Weinberg.“As well as an opportunity to shop for distinctive gifts and handmade items, Gifts Galore is also an opportunity for artists and local vendors to come together and share their talents.”
The idea for the event which started in 2009 came from Weinberg’s interest in connecting with other artists and local vendors in East Cobb.“It’s also a reflection of my own lifestyle – the people, products, services and businesses showcased are ones I personally admire and use.” She started her career as part of an artist cooperative in Alexandria, VA., called The Torpedo Factory and this event gives her the opportunity to recapture that environment. Weinberg also loves working in the garden and the show features the work of a local garden sculptor in the front, along with many works that she has created, a greenhouse built by her husband and several other unique garden features. Weinberg's husband, an avid birder, has turned the yard into a bird haven. This year's event will also feature Plein Air artists demonstrating in the garden.
The setting is fun and unique, with artists and vendors in a relaxed indoor/outdoor environment.Participants in this year’s show will feature jewelry, ceramics, an author, garden sculptures, mosaics, hand knit items, handbags, fashion accessories, baby and home items, skin care products and many other unique gift items. The event will be held Tuesday and Wednesday, October 3rd and 4th in the Somerset Subdivision, 3275 Somerset Trace SE, Marietta, 30067.Hours are Tuesday 11 am to 2 pm & 5 pm to 8 pm and Wednesday 10 am to 3 pm.
